Facial soft tissue fillers are the fastest growing aspect of cosmetic medicine. Dermal fillers are used to address wrinkles and lines that have developed around the nose, mouth, and eyes. These fillers are also able to restore volume that has been lost in the cheek, temples, lips, jawline and under eye area.
Dr. Moses is pleased to offer a wide variety of dermal fillers, each filling a unique niche within facial contouring and providing restoration of a natural, refreshed look. Here at Palmetto Facial Plastics we offer the entirety of the Restylane and Juvederm lines, including Restylane-L, Restylane Refyne & Defyne, Restylane Lyft and Juvederm Voluma, Juvederm Ultra Plus XC to name a few.
Refyne & Defyne: Natural Results That Refyne Your Laugh Lines & Defyne Your Expression.
As skin loses elasticity with age, the lines that run from the sides of your nose toward the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds) and the lines that run from the corners of your mouth toward the chin (marionette lines) appear more noticeable and more pronounced. Restylane Refyne & Restylane Refyne are next-generation hyaluronic acid dermal fillers designed to help support your skin while keeping you looking like you. They are specifically formulated hyaluronic acid dermal fillers made with XpresHAn TechnologyTM that help correct these lines for a more natural look to your face. The unique cross-linking of the gel in Restylane Refyne & Defyne is also designed to help support your natural expression—for real-life results that help maintain natural movement when you’re smiling, frowning and even puckering up. Restylane® Refyne is designed to help soften laugh lines (nasolabial folds and marionette lines). Restylane Defyne is designed to help soften even the deeper formed lines in these same locations and provide support to your facial expressions while subtlety redefining these areas. This can help you restore a more natural look to your face while maintaining your facial expressions. So, you always look like you, only better.
Restylane Defyne and Restylane Refyne are the only fillers on the market that have been shown in a clinical study to help maintain movement and expressions.
Restylane & Restylane Silk:
Restylane is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is specifically formulated to act like your body’s own naturally produced hyaluronic acid, helping to visibly correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including the lines that run from your nose toward the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds) and the lines that run from the corners of your mouth toward the chin (marionette lines).
Dr. Moses also utilizes Restylane in the tear trough to revolumize the under eye area. This is a specialty area for filler injection where volume lost in this area is able to restored through the use of hyaluronic acid fillers. As we age, the fat descends under the eye as ligaments weaken, this can lead to hollowing or puffiness as a shadow develops. Dermal filler offers support to the under eyelid area restoring youthfulness and improving the hollow, tired appearance of dark circles and crepey lower eyelid skin. This helps to rejuvenate the entirety of the eye area and leaves a lasting youthful, rested look.
Through tear trough augmentation with Restylane, the lower eyelid complex can be refreshed and rejuvenated with results lasting 1-2 years. Additionally, patients requiring touch up injections of under eye filler after 1-2 years do not require as much product placement as during the initial treatment session. For more information on under eye filler, please see “Tear Trough Augmentation” under the Other Specialty Procedures tab.
Additionally, Restylane and Restylane® Silk are FDA-approved for lip enhancement in patients over the age of 21 and are uniquely formulated to give your lips fullness and definition. These products are used widely in the smile lines, marionette lines, lips and corners of the mouth.
Restylae Lyft is a hyaluronic acid based dermal filler that is dually indicated to enhance and shape the cheek area and correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds (with results lasting up to 12 months & 6 months, respectively).
Restylane Lyft may also be used off-label for jawline contouring to create a more distinct, clean jawline and/or camoflauge early jowl formation.
Voluma XC: Lift & Contour Cheeks, Providing a Subtle Look that Lasts.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC adds volume to correct age-related volume loss in the cheeks to help create a more youthful appearance. Wrinkles and lines aren’t the only signs of aging. Over time, the cheeks flatten, and the skin may begin to sag. This is caused by a natural loss of volume in the cheek area, or what the experts call age-related midface volume loss. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is designed to add volume beneath the skin’s surface to lift and contour the cheek area. It is the only filler product proven to last up to 2 years in the cheek area.
Ultra Plus XC & Volbella XC: Natural Looking Lips that Last.
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is tailored to add subtle volume to the lips and smooth the appearance of vertical lip lines. JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC adds more fullness and plumps thin lips—whether your lips have thinned over time or you simply want fuller lips. Both products offer results lasting up to 1 year.
There are risks with any cosmetic procedure, including dermal filler injections. Although the risks are uncommon, they may include swelling, bruising or uneven results. Bruising and swelling, if they occur, subside with time and any uneven results can be corrected by dissolving the filler or touching up the procedure. More serious complications can occur, ranging from vascular occlusion, tissue necrosis and even blindness so selecting an experienced, board-certified specialist is of the utmost importance. Risks are discussed in detail during the time of your consultation and Dr. Moses thoroughly answers any questions prior to injections.
